Jamila Jad - Beirut, Beirut, Lebanon - Arabic (Global Lives Project, 2009) ~00:15:03 - 00:30:04


Published 2009


This is part of a 24-hour recording of a day in the life of Jamila Jad, an elementary school student from Beirut, Lebanon. She was 9 years old at the time of the shoot.
Born from a Lebanese mother and a Palestinian father, Jamila Jad inherited the nationality of her father. She is one of 400,000 officially registered Palestinian refugees in Lebanon. Jamila was born and raised in Shatila refugee camp in Beirut, where she attends public school and dreams of becoming a doctor. The oldest of four children, Jamila shoulders many responsibilities at home. Her father has been fighting Hepatitis C, and her mother works a cleaning job to keep the family afloat.
This video was produced by Ron Carr, Irene Herrera, Lindee Hoshikawa, Chahid Akhoury, Lucie Kroening, Kassem Aina, Simone Goldsmith, and Zohour Akkawi. This video is part of the Global Lives Project, a video library of life experience. For more information see globallives.org.
